“This domaine, I believe, turns out some of the best red wines in the entire Loire valley. Overlook them to your disadvantage.” – Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor

Domaine Amirault was founded in 1977 by Yannick with only 3.9 hectares of vines he inherited from his grandfather, Eugéne Amirault. Since that time, he and his son Benoit, who joined the family business in 2003, have expanded their holding to 20 hectares of vineyards in Bourgueil and Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil.

Work in the vineyard and cellar follows the lunar calendar, and the estate received organic certification in 2009.

Under Benoit, the existing minimalistic cellar practices have become even more transparent.
